Classic PC Games

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available in this collection consist primarily of PC demos, freeware, and shareware. These files are the original releases which will require intermediate to advanced knowledge to install and run on modern operating systems. If you would rather simply try some classic MS-DOS games inside your browser you may wish to try the online MS-DOS Software Library. New games are added to this collection on a weekly basis.

Specific news regarding major updates can be found on our website Demu.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at swizzle@demu.org. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode.

If you are running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).

A Fairytale Whodunnit! Parodise, a small world where characters of fairytale lore leave happily ever after... A strange place for sure, but there's obviously a reason why such a world should exist. Sometimes, however, tales run wild. Little Red Riding Hood, for once, has had it with constant delivery of baskets to remote forest cottages. She wanted a job- and after some training became a private investigator. Parodise is in need of a skilled junior PI right now. Someone killed the Big Bad Wolf....

It's World War 2. Your country depends on you. Get in your plane and meet the battle. Destroy enemy planes, zeppelins and ground targets! This dogfighter-game plays more like an arcade shooter than a WW2 flying simulator and that is a good thing in this case. The gameplay is mostly based on destroying targets and not on figuring out how to take off and land the tons of metal around your rather fragile body parts. This means that you get the full experience of flying and shooting at stuff...

"Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden" is a role playing game made with the RPGMaker. Most freeware RPG games deal with fantasy themes like dragons, knights, heroes and a princess in need for help. But this game is different. It is based on the "Space Jam" movie and the whole story is so weird that it's hard to explain: "The Great B-Ball Purge of 2041, a day so painful to some that it is referred to only as the "B-Ballnacht".

The Spirit Engine is a great mix between action, side-scroller and role playing game. You can choose from various characters in the beginning of the game (gets more important during later levels) and have the opportunity to upgrade these characters by buying new armor, weapons and amulets. You can also learn a great variety of spells which you can use during fights. Sometimes it's really hard to find the right spell combination to win a hard fight and you will die several times before you...
